A naked man at San Jose International Airport led police on a chase Saturday morning before he was arrested, San Jose police said.

Robert Isaac Monroy, 25, was booked at Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of felony burglary, felony resisting arrest resulting in injury to a peace officer and misdemeanor indecent exposure, police said.

Monroy was spotted walking through the airport parking garage at 1661 Airport Blvd. around 6:35 a.m., nude and behaving erratically, according to police.

Arriving officers found Monroy near the south end of the parking garage, but he bolted and led the officers on a foot chase through the garage and into Terminal B of the airport, police said.

Officers arrested Monroy outside a security checkpoint in the terminal after he resisted arrest and fought with officers, according to police.

One officer suffered moderate injuries during the arrest. He was taken to a hospital for treatment for injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

Monroy was taken to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose to be medically cleared before being booked, police said. Monroy was not injured during the arrest.
